    Pretty creative, but the real question here is how long before a lawsuit?

    "not all drugs are as harmless as music"

    Kind of interesting.

    I guess it's advertising to the raver community?

    Eh, it might be a main target but I would assume the younger population as a whole. I mean, I assume the iPod is pretty big over there, so they are drawn to it.

    For those who may not realize, these ads were created by the Berlin Drug Awareness Organization.

    Apple is NOT advertising drugs. ;)

    There will be no lawsuit. Parodies are allowed and not illegal. There are at least a few Apple adds that have done the same thing. The last "Intel" add was a parody on an old UPS ad.

    Good point. I'm sure apple is too busy being sued by the other apple anyways.

    Priceless.


    The silhouettes are tired and cliche now. People need to find another way to be not so creative:rolleyes:

    Speaking of the apple silouttes getting other work than iPod ads, did anyone see Eurovision - and the fact in the little 'visit greece' intermissions there were silouttes dancing on blue backgrounds?

    Good too see them getting work and becoming almost as famous as another rogue siloutte - Peter Pan's shadow!

    Until I saw those ads I never thought about jacking up some bolivian while listening to The Chemical Bros.

    Also the tagline is not factual as music can in fact be very harmful. Just ask the Central Scrutiniser. Not to mention excessive volume levels can do more harm than the occasional bottle of Laphroaig .
